Ra­jesh & Piyush, Unedi­tioned Art

Unedi­tioned– The word it­self de­fines our ob­jec­tives of open­ing this firm, the word does not ex­ist in ur­ban dic­tionar­ies, but does ex­ist in our heads. It’s an ini­tia­tive by two art en­thu­si­as­tic who are driven by cre­ativ­ity in all fields of life. For us, unedi­tioned means, art with­out edi­tion, some­thing that is unique, com­pelled by our cre­ativ­ity, our own ways of do­ing things, our life­style, beam Piyush Agar­wal and Ra­jesh of Unedi­tioned Art.

It’s been five years, since the art col­lege pass-outs have es­tab­lished a jour­ney of trans­form­ing many spa­ces through paint­ings and wall tat­toos. The spa­ces es­sen­tially in­clude restau­rants, of­fices, re­tail stores, homes and pub­lic spa­ces. We have also done some events, live paint­ings and graf­fiti’s in open spa­ces. “For now, we are into wall paint­ings, graf­fiti’s, can­vas paint­ings, in­stal­la­tions, prod­uct de­sign­ing, sculp­ture, stop mo­tion, print­mak­ing, and most im­por­tantly con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion of de­sign,” Ra­jesh and Piyush in­formed.

Some of the note­wor­thy projects by the firm in­clude, Laat Saab in which the theme was based on In­dia dur­ing Bri­tish reign and on In­dian cul­tural values, where the kitchen was turned into a train of 1870’s. “The banta bot­tle kept in the bar area was prop­erly re­searched, as very few peo­ple know that it was also orig­i­nated dur­ing Bri­tish pe­riod in In­dia. The logo was de­signed to look like a wax seal, which was highly in de­mand dur­ing the Bri­tish rule. The paint­ing of the fa­mous Nataraja, the colo­nial map of In­dia, in­stal­la­tion of guns and deer head, ev­ery­thing was de­cided ac­cord­ing to the theme, rep­re­sent­ing the cul­ture of In­dia,” Piyush ex­plained.

Ad­dams’s house was an­other restau­rant in­spired by the vi­su­als from the movie Ad­dams’s Fam­ily. Unedi­tioned cre­ated a 3D paint­ing, graf­fiti, a li­brary with nov­els, an in­stal­la­tion with records, sculp­tures to do jus­tice to the con­cept, en­hanc­ing the sub­ver­sive hu­mour per­tain­ing the char­ac­ters. Unedi­tioned also did a project with SA In­fra Con­sul­tancy Pvt. Ltd. which used pho­to­graphs of noted high­ways of In­dia. “An ab­stract rice pa­per paint­ing with sketches of con­struc­tion by us adorned the space,” the duo add.

Unedi­tioned has worked with ma­te­ri­als like fiber­glass, wood, paint­ing, p.o.p, and has also dab­bled in the art of sculp­tures. The artist duo has par­tic­i­pated in ex­hi­bi­tions

like Kochi Bi­en­nale, In­dia De­sign, Ai­facs, Lalit Kala Akademi, Ja­hangir Art Gallery and have re­ceived sev­eral awards in fine art and draw­ings. The duo ren­dered their prow­ess in com­mu­nity paint­ings and so­cial work at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions such as Se­lect City Walk, Delhi, Ti­har Jail, Delhi, Jan­tar Man­tar etc. Cur­rently, Unedi­tioned is the process of de­vel­op­ing prod­ucts for home dé­cor.
